Wellbeing Friends and the 'Frazzled Cafe': Mental Health Awareness Week

This year's Mental Health Awareness Week raises awareness of the impact of loneliness on mental health. 

The Harpenden Trust's Wellbeing Friends have helped 80 people connect with activities and groups in Harpenden in the past 12 months and we are supporting 'Arts on Prescription' and 'Mind in Mid Herts' to provide free activities for those referred by their GPs for support with poor mental health. 

We have also sponsored the opening of a face-to-face Frazzled Cafe - a place for chat within a group of friendly faces, where everyone is welcome. It needs no referral and can be booked online here: https://www.frazzledcafe.org/harpenden
